. the federal government does trump state law. people ask, how can we do it right? i tell them go talk to the chief of police in your city, but understand that this is, no matter what you do, a violation of federal law. and if the dea decides that they're going to prosecute you they can, and they will. the year i bought this place, i was rolling pretty hard, living large, you know? thinking you know, complacent like (bleep) everything's cool i'm bad, whatever. (bleep) camp'd on, big time. they came, dea came looking for me specifically, they didn't know who i was, but they photographs, aerials, they had the whole (bleep) thing, had warrants sworn out and i was scared. so i took that money and i bought this place, and i chilled for a year. myself, i know i've done various things in the past.. such as? such as, oh i was a firefighter for years, i was a general contractor, building contractor. i did have a travel agency, come to think of it (laughing), you know, various things. but it's good to maintain a straight sort of an image so people don't just mark you for what you really are righ
of employees he has to less than 50 so he won't be subject to penalties under the 2010 health law. so right now the federal government is keeping him from offering jobs. that hurts the people who need jobs and who would be happy to be on a payroll where they would be putting their own contributions into social security and medicare. increasing taxes means less growth and fewer jobs, and that's not balanced. three years ago i made a pledge to oppose tax increases. i made that pledge to the citizens i serve and to no one else, and i made it because tax increases will hurt them. when jen, the owner of la petite cuisine in new york says the best thing i can do is give her a break from high taxes, i believe her. i ran for congress to help jen and all the small business people like her who are the engines of job creation. i ran for congress to help all the people who need employers like jen to hire them. these good people deserve better than temporary fixes. they deserve a plan that solves our economic problems for the long term. they deserve a plan that goes beyond politics and shows a commitment to
of law, which is all important? -- how can egypt fulfilled a rule of law, which is all important? >> kurram burk, egypt only have one is -- remember, egypt only have one institution before the revolution, the military. what egypt is trying to do simultaneously is find leaders, build institutions, and meet the aspirations that had been billed very high during a very successful and peaceful revolution. that is not easy. it will take time to build institutions and impose the role of -- the rule of law. >> the ceasefire in gaza, will that help to win egypt friends abroad? >> i think it shows they play a special role in the middle east. and they are regaining their traditional role in the region. it is good as long as the president does not believe he can then take about -- take that and cashed in for a grant of power, which is the concern of some. >> do you think he is the leader to take them into the near future? greta i think he was -- >> i think he was elected democratically in a free and fair election. think of egypt as slowly putting in place all of the various elements of a cou

with this quote, "law and order exists for the purpose of establishing justice. when they fail in this purpose they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress." martin luther king jr. wrote those words from a birmingham jail. 50 years later, over 50 million americans live under correctional control. two million are in prison, five times the number of people incarcerated in 1972. a young black man in america has a one in three chance of gog jail at some point in his life. today we asked what mass incarceration means for our society. it raises questions of race, class, and the meaning of justice. joining me, patricia williams. she a law professor at colombia university american work is to examine race in the american legal system. and michelle alexander, her book "the new jim crow" brought the conversation about mass incarceration to a wider johnson. and eugene jarecki, the filmmaker behind the movie requested the house i live inment. when we use the term "mass incarceration" what are we talking about? >> we're talking about a system that function primarily as

i did not see, the protesters are claiming is this -- i do not it imposes sharia law across the government. they claim it is not adequate to protect the separation of powers, to keep women in the 21st century instead of the stone age. not one person in the constitutional assembly is female. they say it does not protect it. what i am saying is, get in the game. it is time to go back to the table. i might give this advice to the congress, in our country, go back to the table and hammer it out. if both sides are dissatisfied, that means it is a good compromise. >> i wonder if we're expecting too much of a country that has had two decades of leadership. you point out the american example. it is a very fragile as well. >> of the risks are huge. morsi had two good, impressive successes last week. one of them in -- was brokering a ceasefire in gaza, which is also fragile and holding for now. the second is the effort he has made to get the imf to commit four $0.8 billion in loans with billions from the european union and maybe some money from us, depending on congress, to follow. th

-1996. they passed 333 bills into law, with just weeks to go, the 112th congress has passed only 196 bills into law. many of those bills ceremonial. so in order to beat the 104th, the 112th congress has to pass 138 more bills. it's a lot of numbers. that's why we put them on the screen there. they also have to help us avoid the fiscal cliff. as if that was not bad enough, according to a recent gallup poll, only 18% of americans say they approve of the job that lawmakers are doing on capitol hill. and does the republican party's hope for 2016 lie deep in the heart of texas? that's the buzz about state senator-elect ted cruz, who says the gop needs to be more articulate in its message and rebrand itself under a banner he calls, quote, and remember these words. you'll hear them again, "opportunity conservatism." opportunity conservatism. even though his second inauguration is weeks away, president obama is prepping for another campaign. this one to raise money to build his official library. presidential libraries are a chance for every leader of the free world to shape his or her legacy. while it's an

, many of them have american children. yet without any way, currently, of getting right with the law. what we need to do in immigration reform is require that people who are here illegally get right with the law rather than prevent them from getting right with the law. which is what we do currently. so again, while stem immigration is very important, my colleagues are being asked in a closed proto sess to weigh that with the issue of immigrants from the ukraine and albania, at the same time the bill could increase, will increase, the number of illegal immigrants in this country, perhaps increasing the number of illegal immigrants will redouble the efforts of this congress to address this issue but given the enormous dwention of the problem already and the complete lack of consideration of any meaningful immigration bill by this congress to solve our broken immigration system, inle not holding my breath. the zero sum bill on the floor asks us to weight one class of immigrants at the expense of another. in effect, trying to play politics and avoid solving our imdepration crisis. -- and
